Vintage Nikon L35 AD2 35mm point & shoot Film Camera with Case 4061377
The L35AF was Nikon's first compact camera with autofocus. It was released in 1983, a few years after Nikon's competitors had opened up the point-and-shoot market. It was therefore also the first in the L series. It was an immediate hit thanks to its robust design and excellent specifications. It has subsequently become a cult classic among collectors.
A version with an "autodate" function was called the L35AD.
The L35AF was given the nickname 'Pikaichi' ("top notch") in Japan. The lens was designed by Koichi Wakamiya as an update to the Sonnar formula
